Re: HDD keep disconnecting

I thought USB 3.0 was backward compatible, that's why I bought an USB 3.0 enclosure! Also, I'm pretty sure the working enclosure is USB 3.0 too... :oops:

Unfortunately, max_usb_current is already set to 1 :(
By the way, I'm running the latest Raspbian version (4.4.38-v7+).

Re: HDD keep disconnecting

In most cases behaviour like this is caused by a weak power supply that can't quite provide the required 5V when the PI and the HDD need peak current at the same time. So, can you try powering the HDD from something other than the PI ? For example, do you have a powered USB hub that you could put b...

fsck is not very effective

Sometimes, when a power outage occurs, the FAT filesystem of the external HDD attached to my Raspberry Pi 2 goes corrupted. If I run sudo fsck -ya /dev/sda1 , the interface says the filesystem was repaired, but I run in a lot of errors anyways. The only solution that works for me is to plug the HDD ...

Re: HDMI not working before reboot

I have set hdmi_group=1 and hdmi_mode=31 (1080p, 50Hz) and now works, thank you!
Just for my curiosity, why the Raspberry isn't able to auto detect the setting?

Now I see the CLI when I plug the HDMI cable, but I think the aspect ratio is wrong!
The image is cropped on the left and on the right, and is too high so I can't see the top and the bottom!

No, as I stated you are exceeding the current draw of the USB BUS :roll:
Of course the plan is to connect one USB to a power adapter (like the one used for the smartphones) :D

Re: Failed to bring up wlan0

Why this happen? Because the DHCP client ignores the interfaces file and tries to set a DHCP address for each interface regardless. Have a look at the /etc/dhcpcd.conf file or disable/remove the dhcpcd5 package if you are never going to want to use DHCP. At the moment I'm not going to use DHCP, but...
